A V G V S T

A V G V S T is an independent postwave band based in Paris. After two digital releases in the 00s, instrumental post-rock oriented, A V G V S T gets back to his primary influences: post-punk and shoegazing, with obsidious cloudy waves, guitars full of chorus and flanger, and ghostly treated voices singing odes to Socialism saints, cowardice and the pain of still being 18 and alone.

Their 2012 album, Onlooker, and their last digital EPs (Heat of the Moment on Le Turc Mécanique, in the Cheap Recording series, and Shareware on Anywave) mixes dream-pop, arp synths and dancey beats, designing a manner of stadium music in 10m² – the size of A V G V S T’s studio.
